Book Review: The Other Wife by Kathleen Irene Paterka

the other wifeKathleen Irene Paterka will be on tour April 20-27 with her novel The Other Wife

Till death do us part…

Eleanor Anderson has a beautiful home, a loving husband, a tranquil life. After thirty-eight years of marriage and her children now grown, she finally has time for herself. She’s not expecting any surprises; certainly not to wake up one morning and find her husband dead in bed beside her from a massive heart attack. It’s a devastating discovery… but not as much as the shock awaiting Eleanor when she learns the truth about her husband’s secret life. And then there’s the damaging document he signed before his death, which threatens to destroy her life.

Claire Anderson isn’t your average thirtysomething. A professor of psychology at a prestigious university, Claire has a successful career, a handsome husband, and two young children at home. But nothing in her background, including her academic accomplishments, prepares Claire for the horrendous reality of discovering that the life she’d led was all a lie… fostered by a husband who’d promised to love and cherish her forever.

Two women from two generations, bound together by denial, anger, and grief. How far will their misery and fear push them? Does compassion rule the day, or will a husband’s betrayal lead to a woman’s revenge?

What happens when each of these women comes face-to-face with the other wife?


An enjoyable read that I did not want to put down! 2015 has been a year of a lot of ups and downs, but I was happy to find something this entertaining to read!  I can not imagine ever being put through anything that these women went through and because of that I am without a doubt counting my blessings.  The writing was entertaining and the story line fit so well together!  Without a doubt this is a must read for 2015!
